DescriptionThe association of certain fungi with plant roots results in formation of an organ called a mycorrhiza. There are two principal types of mycorrhizae: those with the fungus confined internally in the root, or endotrophic mycorrhizae, and those with both internal fungus development and an external fungal mantle enveloping the root tips, or ectotrophic mycorrhizae. Intergradation between the two types may also occur.
